In the first phase of the planned expansion, the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems (IWES) is officially putting into operation a new test bench in Bremerhaven in the scope of the Hil-GridCoP project together with the project partners Vestas Nacelles Deutschland and Nordex Energy.
In the future, the newly erected hall will see converter and generator systems for multi-megawatt wind turbines tested for their electrical grid compatibility. The Fraunhofer IWES aims to expand its testing capacities for the electrical systems of wind turbines and other power generation systems in two further expansion stages. More than € 30 million in total are set to be invested in expanding the testing infrastructure in Bremerhaven.
